Default Family photos.

Post pictures of your family of guns. Single or group photos are fine.


Profile of the Browning Hi-Power. I put some black plastic grips taken off a European military/police model on it and some electrical tape on the front and back straps to protect the grip areas of the frame.


Browning

Profile of the Beretta 92SB. I got a flat blued metal baseplate correct for the gun and put it on the current mag I have.


92SB from an angle.

Nice long gun collection. Is that a Mossberg heat shield on the 870?

thanks, it's actually a Tac Star Universal Barrel Shroud I ordered off of Amazon.com

I got it pretty much for Aesthetics though

Ah, I didn't know they made heat shields too. It looks cool.

I used to think heat shields were just to make the gun look tacticool. After shooting about 15 rounds through one of mine. That barrel gets a bit hot. So those trench guns had them for a reason.

How do you like the shell holder on the stock? I've thought about going that route or a side saddle on the receiver.

I actually read on the net that the reason for them is so that when the trench-gun is equipped with a bayonet you'll still be able to get a high grip on the barrel.I also go shooting with my friends a lot and we pass the same shotgun around so I guess it helps.

It's about $25 cheaper then a side saddle on the receiver. Installation is a lot easier seeing as you just slide the fabric holder on like a sock as oppose to having to remove the pins on the receiver and all that stuff. I also imagine that with the receiver mounted side saddle that it may get in the way if you don't have a wide gun case.

You can also get both, I mean the stock shell holder is only $5.

I've seen some videos where the side saddle is used in speed reloads, and since it's on the receiver and not on the stock you don't have to reach as far. I'm looking into getting one as well as a bandolier. The stock sleeve seems like it would be uncomfortable to shoulder, and inconvenient for a quick reload, though it's better than nothing, and at a low price like 5 bucks it's a good value to have extra ammo.

If you are holding the shotgun properly your body won't even come in contact with the stock sleeve so it isn't an issue. It's purpose isn't really a quick reload but an extra location to place some shells.
